Never gonna keep me down
Still the one who's standing now
Destiny is calling me
Go down in history
Everyday I fight to be
Frontman John Cooper told Billboard
the band have always put their heads down and pushed forward when confronted with adversity. "There's a line in the chorus that says, 'Still the one who is standing now,' and that's how I feel about Skillet," he explained. "You all said it couldn't happen and we're all still standing. That's what 'Legendary' means."
Cooper added the lyrics are a call to make your life matter. "You're going to have a lot of hard things in your life," he said. "Sometimes it will get you down, but you need to make your life count. You are only here for so long on earth, so every day fight to be legendary."
